2 month-old fry. After 4th cull.
Largest in this group is about 5 cm. Smallest is 3 cm plus
This batch grows slower than P1-F1 because there was a period of 4 days I forgot to feed them. More than half of them died as a result of my laziness. I deeply regret it. You see, the fry were lousy shaped when they reach about 3 weeks old, so I was not so zealous about this batch of 200+. Now, seeing how they grow, I kick myself for making judgement when they were only 2-3 weeks old. Of course they are straight-backed at that young age... my bad...
So, my advice is, not to cull any fishes until they are about 2-3 cm, unless of course they display some obvious defects like having dorsal or single tail.
Group 2 now still very small - lesser than 3 cm. Although there are a couple not bad ones, I'll probably cull the whole group 2 because their slow growth rate is a sign of bad genetics of qualitative phenotypes. My P1-F1 was much more constant in growth but I only have 2 pieces left.

The callous way you describe you lack of attentiveness is a disgrace. You shouldn't be allowed to keep fish. It's disgusting.
